I am looking for a modeling software.

In summary, the conversation was about finding a software that can build models and imitate their actions, specifically models made of rubber-bands, cog-wheels, weights, and more. The original poster asked for recommendations and someone suggested using Microsoft Physics Illustrator or Matlab. Another person recommended anim8or as an easy and powerful option.

Hello!

I am looking for a software that can build models and can imitate the
action of that model.
The model will be made out of rubber-bands, cog-wheels, weights and more...

anyone knows of such a software?

it is very important...

thanks!

If you can program then it wouldd be lot's of fun to make one yourself:)
other than that i don't think that I've ever seen something like that on the internet - maybe there's some engineering software you can use.

... just so am around the same ballpark, you're looking for a software to model behavior of mechanisms? Do you want to link it to something like stress analysis etc. ?

Have you seen the "Microsoft Physics Illustrator" as listed on the blog
https://www.physicsforums.com/blog/2006/05/20/tabletpcs-for-science-and-science-teaching/ ?
(follow the links to see how to use it on a non-TabletPC)

Matlab is the best.

Also you can try WorkingModel, it's fun.:smile: http://www.design-simulation.com/"
But as stated, if you have some time to learn Matlab, consider doing it.

robphy, I couldn't find the explenation abouthow to use it on non-tabletPC.
can you be more specific?

thanks!

Probably the easiest is anim8or. I'd say its probably definitely the smallest. (wings is pretty small). I've played with anim8or a lil, and gmax is more powerful, and easier to work with, but it can't export very easily. Both are my top 2 fav's if you don't count the ones you have to buy, like 3d studio max.

Hope this helped...

Try anim8or.

Related to I am looking for a modeling software.

1. What is a modeling software?

A modeling software is a computer program that allows scientists, engineers, and other professionals to create virtual models of real-world objects or systems. These models can be used to simulate and analyze various scenarios and make predictions about how the real-life counterpart would behave.

2. What are the common features of a modeling software?

Some common features of a modeling software include the ability to create, manipulate, and visualize 3D objects, the ability to apply different physical properties and behaviors to these objects, and the ability to simulate real-world conditions such as gravity, wind, and temperature.

3. How do I choose the right modeling software for my project?

Choosing the right modeling software depends on the type of project you are working on and your specific needs. Some factors to consider include the software's compatibility with your computer's operating system, its cost, its level of complexity, and its ability to handle the type of modeling you need to do.

4. Can modeling software be used for different purposes?

Yes, modeling software can be used for various purposes such as creating 3D models for video games, designing virtual prototypes for new products, simulating the effects of natural disasters, and analyzing data in scientific research.

5. What are the benefits of using modeling software in scientific research?

Modeling software can greatly aid scientists in their research by allowing them to create and test virtual models of complex systems or phenomena. This can save time, resources, and potentially lead to new discoveries or insights that may not have been possible through traditional methods.
